The detour phase method for the design of computer-generated holograms can be modified to achieve multichannel reconstruction along various diffraction orders. It is shown how a single hologram can be used to display two patterns of different intensities along two diffraction orders. This is achieved by the release of any requirement on the phase distributions of these patterns, thus leaving them as free parameters. Various algorithms are suggested to make possible nonidentical reconstructions along two different off-axis diffraction orders. The two reconstruction orders can be chosen arbitrarily. The case of four-channel reconstructions for generating four different images is discussed as well. Computer simulations and optical experiments were carried out to demonstrate the capabilities of the proposed approaches.
